The FINANCIAL -- Robots are increasingly being developed to serve as active “helpers” in situations where humans require assistance to undertake certain tasks.  This means that the humans involved must be fully confident in robot behaviour if human-robot teamwork is to become viable and productive.The “Trustworthy Robotic Assistants” project which totals £1.2million will explore how robots can participate in sophisticated interactions with humans in an increasingly safe and trustworthy manner, according to University of Liverpool.

Funded by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), that It will address issues concerning the barriers between the robot and the human that have hampered the development of human-robot interactions, and will look at not only whether the robot makes safe moves but whether it knowingly or deliberately makes unsafe moves.


“The assessment of robotic trustworthiness has many facets, from the safety analysis of robot behaviours, through physical reliability of interactions, to human perceptions of such safe operation,” said Professor Michael Fisher, principal investigator at Liverpool and Director of the University’s Centre for Autonomous Systems Technology.


“The aim of this project is to bring together robot designers, those researching the detailed analysis of autonomous systems and those assessing social interactions between humans and robots to provide a methodology for verification and validation that enables the design of safer and more trustworthy robotic assistants,” he added.
